i'm trying this idea of writing an "ur-document." For the introduction to Spanish verse, mentioned below, I am writing for one hour on ten separate days. I'll end up with a document of more than twenty pages to which I can return whenever I get stuck with the actual writing of the book. An hour is a long time just to brainstorm, generate ideas and plan strategies. It might not be a long time to produce finished prose, but that's not the point here.

I don't know whether it is even a viable project yet. The ur-text should tell me whether it is or not.
